Just eat...you NEED protein...and hard to digest only means it takes longer to digest...you can add a digestive enzyme for protein when you're eating it.
I don't believe gluten is horrible for people with UC. I have no problem with those foods....but, you can look into the diets that are suggested by many on the forum...such as the SCD
Do you eat eggs, chicken, fish, ?
What are you basically eating now?
